Volkswagen 2 door

Volkswagen 2 door DEFAULT

One of the most iconic Volkswagen cars is set to be completely redesigned for the 2022 model year. The Volkswagen GTI is surprisingly affordable despite its racecar-like handling, capable engine, and luxury interior. For 2022, it will reportedly have updated technology and even better performance specs.

One thing that probably won’t return is the two-door option for the VW GTI. According to Car and Driver, the automaker wanted to shift its focus to four-door models, which were more popular amongst consumers. While some people might miss the two-door GTI, the 2021 model still has a lot to offer.

The two-door 2016 Volkswagen GTI

For this model year, the Volkswagen GTI has a 210-hp turbo-four paired with a six-speed manual transmission. You could also opt for an automatic six-speed gearbox, and a performance package to add 10 additional ponies to the engine. Every 2016 GTI has an adjustable suspension that can be tuned for maximum enjoyment on the track or daily driving.

The GTI coupe is lighter than its four-door counterpart, giving it slightly better handling. The engine provides consistent acceleration and tackling sharp corners is easy inside the GTI. Gas mileage isn’t particularly remarkable, rated for 25/34 mpg city/highway at best.

While all 2016 GTI models are now cheaper on the used market, the two-door model was less expensive upon its release. Car and Driver reports that this version was $600 cheaper than the four-door GTI. However, it was more difficult to locate in showrooms because it had to be ordered through VW’s website.

These models received some impressive new tech for this year, like standard smartphone integration, Bluetooth, and a touchscreen infotainment interface. However, the 2016 Volkswagen GTI is considered to be less reliable compared to other years.

The 2017 model’s popularity

2017 may have been the Volkswagen Golf GTI coupe’s final year, but a GTI Sport was introduced. This model featured the performance package as standard equipment, adding extra horsepower and upgraded brakes. A limited-slip differential was also included, and fans were relieved to find that the manual transmission wasn’t phased out.

The 2017 Sport model has some flashier exterior elements, like LED running lights and Nogaro wheels with blacked-out caps. Disappointingly, you couldn’t have the performance package on the 2017 Volkswagen GTI coupe. The two-door model was only available as a standard S trim. 

Is the 2021 Volkswagen GTI better?

The latest Volkswagen GTI has a slightly peppier engine, capable of 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The six-speed manual is still there, but drivers can now opt for a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Both are good matches for the engine, but the manual undoubtedly gives thrill-seekers the best experience.

GTIs with the manual transmission get the worst gas mileage, down to 23/30 mpg city/highway. Even though it’s a sportier model, its ride is quite comfortable. Riders can sit on either cloth or leather seats, both of which come with heating for the cabin occupants. Both rows are accommodating enough for taller passengers.

The 2021 Volkswagen GTI is still slightly outdated in terms of technology, evident from its 6.5-inch touchscreen. You can upgrade to an 8-inch screen, but the graphics are still grainy and don’t always react in time to inputs. The base trim still has a decent selection of both convenience and safety tech.

While VW apparently doesn’t see the merit of offering two-door models, coupes are far from out of style. The popular Toyota Supra is available exclusively as a coupe, while Mustangs and Porsche models offer two-seaters as well. With enough interest, Volkswagen might reconsider its perspective on a future Volkswagen GTI coupe.

The end has come for the iconic VW Beetle — but here are some 2-door cars you can still buy for $35,000 or less

2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition
Volkswagen
  • The final Volkswagen Beetle has left the assembly line, and with it's discontinuation, consumers have lost another affordable two-door.
  • There aren't many coupés remaining in the US market that sell for $35,000 and under, but I rounded up a few.
  • Coupés are fun to drive and for the most part offer good versatility.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

These days, it seems that sedans are a vanishing breed of automobile, what with automakers retiring them left and right due to the surging popularity of SUVs and pickup trucks.

But another genre of vehicle is also getting scarce: the el cheapo coupé. 

There used to be a lot more two-doors in the market. Now, the space features sports cars, muscle cars, and supercars, but a dwindling supply of affordable coupés. 

With the last VW Beetles having rolled off the assembly line in Mexico, there's one less inexpensive two-door to choose from.

But the species hasn't completely vanished. I rounded up some survivors, all priced $35,000 or less for the base versions.

The Beetle Final Edition SEL that I recently tested cost $27,000. I genuinely love this car and will miss it!

I've always been a big fan of two-doors. When I lived in LA, I owned both a Saab 900S and a Mazda Miata. Prior to that, I had a Mazda 323 and a two-door Mazda pickup truck, mixed in with some four doors. And when I was in high school, I enjoyed a slick Buick Regal two-door.

Sure, if you must have a two-door, then there are always snazzy sports cars. But they can be pretty high-ticket, such as the Porsche 911 Targa. That ride starts at $110,000.

Sporty fun for much less, with two doors, can be had via the MINI lineup. A base Mini Cooper stickers at $24,000.

For reliable, basic transportation, look no farther than the Honda Civic Coupe. Base price? $21,000.

The plucky Fiat 500 is two-doors cute, and a serious bargain at $15,000 base.

The Subaru BRZ's four-cylinder engine maxes out at 205 horsepower, but this base-price $26,000 sportster has a lively tail-end and feels like it wants to rotate at 40 mph!

The mechanically similar Toyota 86 is a touch pricier at $27,000 base.

Step up to a burlier Nissan 370Z for $30,000 and taste a 332-horsepower V6. Nissan hasn't updated its Z-car in a while, but the company doesn't need to — it's great the way it is.

Volkswagen Scirocco R coupe review - CarBuyer

The two-door Volkswagen GTI is dead, we learned at the brand’s full-line launch event today. Production of the model has ended, VW confirmed upon our inquiry: “The trend is clearly shifting toward four-door models,” said Volkswagen of America’s marketing chief, Hendrik Muth. Previously, VW had indicated that the two-door would continue for 2017 but in base trim only.

The decision mirrors VW’s Golf R offering, which also comes as a four-door only; the two-door Golf already had been dropped. At Audi, CEO Rupert Stadler has publicly questioned the wisdom of the two-door versions of the Audi A1 and A3, both of which are not available in the United States.

What hasn’t ended, fortunately, is production of the manual transmission for the GTI. And VW has upgraded content of the GTI for the 2017 model year.

Last year, the two-door GTI was $600 cheaper than the corresponding four-door. It was available by order only, which could make it hard for anyone seeking the body style of the original GTI to hunt down one of the remaining two-doors.

Golf GTI

Fun-to-drive has never felt so powerful.

The Golf GTI is more than just a 4-wheeled machine – it’s a force. With bold looks, a 2.0L turbocharged engine, and an Autobahn-tuned sport suspension, the Golf GTI can truly bring the heat.

Take the wheel, challenge the road.

These available paddle shifters, located near your fingers on the steering wheel, let you quickly shift the 7-speed DSG® automatic transmission without taking your hands off the wheel. Take the wheel, and take control.

Driving Mode Selection allows you to change the way your car performs. You have the power to adjust the drive and how the car responds on the road.

The progressive variable-ratio steering system provides a quick response to driver input at higher speeds, while making driving easier at lower speeds. Now the only variable you have to think about is which route you want to take home.

This turbo direct injection engine can be powerful and efficient. The turbo technology forces cooled air straight into the engine, helping give you increased performance. But you don’t have to pop the hood to understand why. A simple step on the gas pedal will do.

Feel exhilaration to the next level with available racing-inspired paddle shifters.

Your way and the highway.
